Welcome to Farm Light Designs! I’m just a local gal, specializing in creative design for the small businesses and organizations of Southwest Minnesota. My business is to work one-on-one with local folks, not just to achieve their current web design and marketing needs, but to offer continuing service and support that will help small SW Minnesota groups and businesses thrive. Your attention is likely focused on running your company or organization successfully and smoothly. Although you know you need an online marketing strategy, the world of website building, social media, and graphic design can be daunting and confusing. I’m here to help! Here’s how…

Your website is the core of your online marketing presence, and should embody the heart of what your business or organization represents. I will help you to take your ideas and turn them into a one-of-a-kind concept that is uniquely ‘you’.

Social media (Facebook, Twitter, etc…) is one of the best ways to regularly engage with your patrons and potential clients to keep them informed. From simply needing help setting up your social media accounts, to a complete management package, I’m your gal.

The way you present yourself matters, but there’s no denying that we’re bombarded by an ocean of information in our modern, digital world. I can help you to use your logo, branding, and design concept to help YOU stand out from all the other fish in the sea.

The needs of each business or organization are unique. Email marketing, brochures, promotional items, etc… Not all marketing options make sense for everyone. I can help you analyze and implement the tools that are the right fit for your own personal ‘marketing toolbox’.

SOMETIMES IT IS A GOOD IDEA TO PUT ALL YOUR EGGS IN ONE BASKET

I specialize in creative design solutions for small businesses and organizations, particularly website design and ongoing support services such as website updates and maintenance, as well as social media management. If that sounds like what you’re looking for, contact me and we can discuss your needs and determine if I am the right fit for your project! Click here to learn more about me and connect.

Once we determine what your needs are, we’ll discuss your project in more specific terms and I will provide you with a quote. The quote is my best fair estimate of what the services will cost based on our preliminary conversations, but please keep in mind that this amount is subject to change based on the actual work completed as the project moves forward. I will do my best to keep you informed of those costs along the way. I treat my clients respectfully and fairly and expect to be treated the same. If you decide to move forward, a non-refundable 50% deposit will be due before any work begins. View the individual service pages to learn more about base pricing.

Time to begin! The goal of creative design is to successfully communicate to potential clients what your business or organization provides; therefore, the success of your project depends largely on the content you provide for me. From images to written content to design details, we will work together to gather and organize the content needed to represent you well.

I will start by coming up with a basic color scheme, design concept and ‘feel’ for your project. Once we have settled on the basic design concept, I will begin adding the bulk of the content and detailed work as applicable. To keep the project moving forward, a set number of revisions will be allowed. Please refer to the pages for specific services (web design, social media, logo & branding, etc.) to learn more about the parameters included for each type.

The hard work is done and the fun begins… It’s time to launch your website, social media platform, or brand design for public viewing and get noticed!

Any good creative designer will tell you that the journey does not end once your projects are complete, especially in the ever-changing world of web design and social media, which is why I offer and encourage ongoing management and maintenance packages. Services may include regular updates, providing analytics, keeping platform and hosting accounts up to date, and more… All so that you can focus on what matters to you: running your business or organization as successfully and smoothly as possible.

Responsive Design...

     What is it and why do you need it?

Our access to mobile, on-the-go website viewing has drastically changed how websites must function. Responsive design ensures that websites look good on desktop and laptop computers, tablets, and smartphones alike. Quite simply, the layout and content of a 'responsive' website shifts and adjusts based on the size of the browser being used to make the viewing experience easier, more functional, and visually pleasing the reader. Responsive design is quickly becoming standard practice in the website world.
